NOT Smart - this story

This headline appeared in Stuff recently.. "Shopping online increasingly 'dangerous'"
The story is more than weak, and demonstrates the little understanding the journalist has of the online shopping world.
If you are going to publish an article warning of the dangers of unregulated products for sale, don't confuse the story by inferring ALL online shopping is dangerous.

IE8 - Hello World

Looks like Microsoft are proving thier committment to standards and interoperability.

Given the debate on OOXML and the lip service that has been paid in the past this is refreshing...

Split Enz, Christchurch, 21 March 2008

Split Enz, Christchurch, 21 March 2008

History Doesn’t Repeat. It just gets better.

Split Enz, the group that helped define the course of music in New Zealand and Australia, are reuniting and hitting the road in March 2008 for a New Zealand tour that ENZ fans have only dreamed of.

Next March Tim Finn, Neil Finn, Eddie Rayner, Noel Crombie and Nigel Griggs will bring the inimitable style of Split Enz to Auckland's Vector Arena.

Audiences can expect to be treated to a typically extravagant - full of hits - Split Enz concert but The Frontier Touring Company’s Michael Gudinski says fans should also be prepared for some surprises.

It has also been confirmed that Noel Crombie will once again take up the double mantle of band member and stylist/set designer. So be prepared for some classic Split Enz costumes with a bit of modern flair and a return of the famous spoons!

Split Enz fans are amongst the most dedicated in the world, with the band’s official fanclub, Frenz of the Enz, boasting 15,000 paying members from across the globe. In recent years, the membership has increased notably as younger and younger fans have discovered the timeless appeal of Split Enz’s music.
